Synopsis

Mark Schultz, despite having won a gold medal for wrestling at the 1984 Olympics, lives in the shadow of his accomplished older brother, Dave. Mark seems to have found his own path when multimillionaire John E. du Pont invites Mark to train as part of a national U.S. wrestling team preparing for the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. Du Pont's training is relentless and his philosophy strident, but Mark wants to please him nonetheless. But when Dave arrives to much fanfare to join Team Foxcatcher, Mark finds himself relegated to the shadows once again, while DuPont begins to unravel. Based on a true story.
